Breakfast time! Come and get it! Though I rarely actually have to call anyone to the table to eat. These pepper and egg cups are delicious and filling. While my kids don’t care for these, they are against egg, but Hubby and I enjoy having them ready to heat up each morning. Hubby can grab them on the way out the door on his way to work.
Pepper and Egg Cups for Breakfast

These are easy to make, healthy, and they are extremely filling.
Grab a large bowl, crack 10 eggs into it. Add in your milk, 3/4 of the shredded cheese, diced peppers, basil, and bacon bits into the bowl too. Mix everything together really well.
This part is important: spray your muffin tin really, really well with non-stick spray. These will stick. They’ll stick slightly even with spraying well. I get between 10-12 cups, depending on whether I go overboard with peppers. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
I have silicone muffin tins on my kitchen wish list. I don’t for sure if these would make a different but I want to try. If you have some, let me know!
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
- 1⁄2 cup Hormel Bacon bits
- 1⁄2 cup uncooked bell peppers
- 10 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup plain unsweetened almond milk - or your choice of milk
- 4oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1 tsp basil
- Mix together all ingredients minus 1oz of cheese.
- Divide into greased muffin tin. Sprinkle a little cheese on top.
- Bake for 30 minutes
These pepper and egg cups are perfect for making up ahead of time. Either throw a couple into the microwave or oven to reheat for breakfast on the go. Or perfect for Christmas morning!
